G-160 S

With the same long, long front centre and 160mm travel, this platform is perfect for gravity enduro racing or just bombing around your local hardcore trails. The G-160 S pedals uphill remarkably well for such a burly, capable bike. You can even tackle most Irish downhill trails with it. The 2016 G-160 S uses Whyte’s single-chainring specific frame design. Since the frame does not need to allow space for a second chainring and front derailleur, the chainstays are symmetrical and the main pivot is 20% wider than the previous dual-ring design. This makes for a much stiffer back end and less load on the main pivot bearings. 27.5″ wheels, 160m travel, hydroformed frame with internal cables and Intergrip seat post clamp RockShox Yari RC fork with 160mm travel and boost width 15mm Maxle RockShox Monarch Debonair R shock SRAM GX 1 x 11-speed drivetrain SRAM Guide R 4-pot brakes with 180mm rotors Boost 148mm rear and 110mm front hubs WTB STs 29mm tubeless-ready rims, sealed cartridge bearing hubs WTB Convict 2.4 Light High Grip/Riddler 2.3 Light Fast Rolling tubeless ready tyres RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post Price:...

T-129 S

If you haven’t ridden a 29er before, try this. Whyte’s Quad 4 suspension layout allows them to apply their contemporary 29er trail hardtail geometry to the 120mm suspension trail bike category.
